Well! When I was in Finland Wolverine was still a mega mammal, but evidently people must be keeping them as pets these days judging by the amount and quality of photos around. Obviously I'll have to go back.

Great pix BTW!

That was the last displaying day and this individual was so called crazy due to hormone inbalance.

Wonderful stuff! Some great birds there and pics. A friend of mine has just come back from a great trip to Finland (albeit non-bird related); sounds like a wonderful place to visit next time I'm back in Europe.
